How to make 5 gorgeous gin slushies

Make 5 delicious gin slushies straight out of your school’s out for summer memories and get that lazy summer holiday feeling. This is a great excuse to be a kid again with a grown up version of your favourite treat. Perfect for a warm day, just follow our easy and tasty recipe, sit back, relax and drift into your top summer memory.

Even better, the gins below are all on offer in our 3 for 2 Sipping on Summer deal! Or if you want the whole package, you can grab a Gin Festival In A Box and get gin, mixers and glasses in one go. Cheers!

Here’s how to make our favourite gin slushies using a ratio of 1 part gin to 3 parts mixer:

RASPBERRY GIN SLUSHIE INGREDIENTS

  • PJ Gin Raspberry - 1 part

  • Lemonade - 3 parts

  • Creme de Framboise - drizzle over the top

  • Garnish - mint and raspberries

Raspberry Gin Slushie

VIOLET GIN SLUSHIE INGREDIENTS

  • Boe Violet Gin - 1 part

  • Soda - 3 parts

  • Creme de myrtille/mure - drizzle over the top

  • Garnish - blueberries

CLASSIC GIN SLUSHIE INGREDIENTS

METHOD 1

  1. Pour some gin, we suggest a ratio of 1:4 parts (a quarter) into a tray or whatever good sized container you can get your hands on.

  2. Add some soda or lemonade, a ratio of 3:4 parts (3 quarters) depending which recipe you fancy.

  3. Freeze for at least 2 hours until you have mushable ice.

  4. Mash up the ice with the handle of a spoon (or whatever comes to hand), until you have a slush puppy like consistency.

  5. Fill a glass full of the slush.

  6. Top up with extra gin or lemonade/soda to taste.

  7. Drizzle the liqueur or sugar syrup over, garnish, add straw.

  8. Sit back, relax and enjoy your gin slushie.

METHOD 2

Use crushed ice it’s quicker! But it doesn’t give you proper slush.

VIOLET GIN SLUSHIE

  1. Freeze blueberries.

  2. Muddle frozen blueberries with Boe Violet Gin, a splash of sugar syrup, and a squeeze of lemon.

  3. Top up with crushed ice & soda.

  4. Drizzle creme de myrtille/mure over the top and add a straw.

  5. Sit back, relax and enjoy your gin slushie.

CLASSIC GIN SLUSHIE

  1. Add Burleigh’s London Dry Gin, sugar syrup, and red grapefruit flesh to glass and muddle.

  2. Top up with soda and crushed ice.

  3. Garnish with a grapefruit twist (for no waste use the skin that's left over once you've removed the flesh) and add a straw.

  4. Sit back, relax and enjoy your gin slushie.
